theys yellow.
he's still a badass.

Sooooo he's releasing a new album with the Mystic Valley Band in May.

I swear he said he would be working on a new Bright Eyes one after the MVB tour finished? LIAR! Oh well. New stuff is new stuff.

Also, there was a new version of Lua recorded with Gillian Welch for a benefit compilation CD called 'Dark Was The Night' and I was wondering if anyone had a link to d/l the song..? I know that completely defeats the purpose of the CD but I really just want to hear that song.
Actually, looking at the tracklisting, it looks like a pretty good compilation...

you still would.

I don't know if this is like a sin or whatever, but I mainly like the studio stuff anyway...
The only thing that comes to mind immediately, and that is not on an album is No Lies, Just Love
But you'll only like it if you're used to whiny-suicidal-Conor.
Oh and then The Vanishing Act, but that's on Noise Floor so maybe that doesn't count.

totes forgot about this place. :oops:

cool is overrated

If you already got Conor Oberst solo album, then your way cooler than I am. Then again everybody else on here already is.

I gotta put some love on right here. But I feel limited because I only have his studio albums and I know he has released a lot more. Anyone have some stuff they want to share/recommend?

Seems to me like he's channeling Malcolm McDowell in "A Clockwork Orange":

Why is it that I hated High School so much, but I sort of wish I could go back to 9th grade and redo it all?

I might start listening to Letting Off The Happiness again, it would only be appropriate.

I'm just givin' this some lovin'.

BUUUUUUMP

You don't know who BOY GENIUS is?? :shock:

Hah, I'm kidding. You know Bright Eyes, I'm sure? Or at least that song "Lua"? Well, he's basically Bright Eyes minus a couple other musicians.

that is quite possibly the most quintessential "it's funny because it's true" scenario. Woah, I just used three of my former vocabulary words in one scentence.

[quote="Hoo-lee-ah"]Aw, I actually really like the video :) Thank you for posting that interview earlier as well, it was meant to be up on MTV aaaaaages ago. I like what he says at the end about 'the moment' being a gift, and that's why it's called the present, hahahahahaha how cute. Call me retarded but I've never heard anyone say that before.

[b][color=#FF0080]I don't want no ordinary guys,
Comin' on strong to me.
They don't know what I'm lookin' for,
They don't know what I need.
They're gonna know when he gets here,
Cause the crowd will be shakin'.
I'll do anything to let him know,
That I'm his, his for the takin'.

What a little man he is. He should try out the platform-shoe look, Spice Girls style.

I'm doing some bumpablancas-ing.

Someone should write in to the Oxford Dictionary and make bumpablancas an official term.

I remember this, but it wasn't on [i]our[/i] MB, was it? I'm getting confused.

[quote="knowing you"]Because it's mediocre?[/quote]

No I usually lap up mediocre stuff no problem, but something is very very wrong with that album.

And the only worthwhile song on that album is Lime Tree because it's actually good.

I took a picture of his ass

I'll raise my hand and say I actually do remember that thread. I think he's unattractive, personally.

[quote="Hoo-lee-ah"]So who else finds that listening to Cassadaga is an incredibly agitating/uncomfortable experience?[/quote]

I haven't even downloaded it or streamed it...and I'm a big fan. He gets new stuff out there all the time so it doesn't really bug me.

Conor looks just like the guy from wedding crashers!

I used to know a guy who was -obsessed- with this dude.

-Viv(He was also the most conservative neocon I've ever met. Describing him with the word "fascist" would not be overkill.)

:o you lucky woman, you! I've seen the youtube of that, and it makes me cringe, but conor always makes me cringe - in a good way.
I want to see him & the Mystic Valley Band but I miss all the UK dates by like a week or so :(

And I don't think Rolling Stone is to blame for Connor's deathly appearance ...I mean that guy was/is genuinely fucked up A LOT. Or maybe he felt guilty for supporting trite music journalism and thus got more fucked up than usual? Seems like a good excuse to me!

Now come the photos...
Who takes a photo like this? What kind of normal person would pose with a squirrel like this?
